Keeping on my toes

A bit about badminton

Badminton is an easy sport to learn and can be a very social game.  The speed of the shuttlecock also makes this one of the quickest of the racket sports. It can be played at any pace making it enjoyable for all ages.  

Is a badminton court the place for you?

Badminton works your entire body as your legs are moving you round the court and your upper body helps you to hit the perfect return so it's a great all round workout.  You can play at different levels too so those wanting a lower intensity rally can catch up on the chat at the same time, but for others a competitive game may be the way forward.  Singles and doubles can be enjoyed depending on how many people are available.

Let's get you started

Book a court today, join in our social badminton sessions or sign up to a course to learn how to play and develop your technique.
